Calhoun community college is a lovely school, but there's always room for improvement. I think that we could make students feel more accepted and involved if there wasn't as much LGBTQ bashing done by some of the professors and clubs. I think that we could also work on making text books more affordable and easy to assess.


Calhoun is a great college that's affordable and very well made. They have a variety of different classes and activities everyday. The campus is really nice and in a great location that is easy to access. I would defiantly recommend this school to anyone who is trying to save money and is a first timer.


I think that Calhoun Community College provides a solid foundation for those that are looking to simply get their foot in the door on the college experience; that is for those who plan to take their education up a notch by continuing on at a 4-year institution. For others who simply want to learn more about a topic or those that have returned to earn a higher degree, Calhoun is a place of flexibility and reliability. What you put into it is what you get out of it. In every school there are "bad teachers", good/decent teachers, and great teachers and regardless of their aptitude to do their job, it is up to you to decide what environment/teaching style fits you best and I believe that Calhoun offers you the opportunity to do that. A plus that I'd like to add is that getting in contact with advisors within a realistic amount of time has been very possible for me; especially if I have a specific advisor that I like to meet with.

    If I could go back in time to when I was a high school senior and tell myself what I know now, I would tell myself to slow down and take in your high school experience. Live every moment of everyday to the fullest, because college and high school are a lot different. I used to rush myself to get out of high school, and now all I wish is that I was back in high school. I would tell my high school self to take more chances and have fun, join clubs, do more school activities, and enjoy my friends while I still have them. I always missed out on so much in school that I regret all the time, and I wish I could go back and do it all over again. So, if I could go back and tell myself to enjoy life as it was then, I definitely would.
